  1. Thanks to all for your messages on my 70th birthday. Much appreciated. I know you all thought I was in my 30's
  2. I will ask the Devs again if they have any update. Apologies for the delay. @Greg Jones for comment please.
  3. Better news ! Here is an extract from your last sceneryPacks.ini called by you "NEW scenery-packs" which you attached on Monday: I will now look at your newly attached scenery_packs and get it back to you shortly.
  4. Thanks for the feedback. Please also now attach the XP log file that was made when the sim had a CTD. I am unable to determine the cause of your issue with TEGB Central so i am going to have to pass this over to the Orbx Central team to see if there is anything in the Orbx central Log file that may hint at what the cause is. @Nick Cooper Please pass this over to Orbx Central support unless you can advise what the Central log is telling us as to whether the addon is correctly installed or why there is always a CTD with TEGB Central. Thanks 10-20_central.log..rtf
  5. Working through your scenery_packs I note you have 2 copies of TEGB South Overlay showing. Please delete one of those folders from you Custom Scenery folder. There should only be one and is 3.45MB in size on Disk. I iwll wait for your confirmation that you have deleted one of those folders before continuing with the scenery_packs reorganisation as if I do it now and the duplicate file is not removed it will be added to the scenery_packs when you next use XP11 and cause issues.
  6. Have you acted on the advice given on the Orbx Direct product info for GCTS? It states you need to use the Compaibility Options zip file when wanting to use with Orbx Canaries (or Spain UHD) see pic: This is what I see at GCTS with the compatibility option used:
  7. Your scenery_packs.ini is wrongly layered and therefore many aspects of the EGHI airport are being masked as will some of TEGB South. It is not an addon issue but it is caused by incorrect layering in the scenery_packs.ini I will not be replying to your other scenery_pack check request on this link ( as I will be answering your issues here. I will need time to go through your scenery_packs.ini as you have a lot of addons to sort out into the correct layering sequence. For example your TEGB South addon and othe True Earth addons are in completely the wrong place and not as Orbx Central would have placed them when first installed. Do you use an organiser tool? I will post back the revised scenery_packs.ini when I have completed it.
  8. I am afraid that it is not an airport that Orbx has control over and my attempt to flatten has obviously not worked Try sending me the apt.dat file from the addon and I will see what I can do. Bear in mind that this is an issue with the freeware airport and not the Orbx TE SoCal addon and is the responsibility of the freeware airport dev to resolve as I repeat what I mentioned in my first response to you that TE Addons are designed to work wit default Laminar airports and Orbx Airport addons made for a specific TE addon.
  9. I will need to refer this to @Ed Correia for comment regarding Orbx' responsibility as it not in my purview. "I appreciate this is an Aerosoft product and I will be posting about it on their forum but I don't think that relieves Orbx from it's responsibility to check that those marketing statements are correct at point of sale. I'd appreciate your comments"
  10. Sorry my error regarding LSZH. I was trying to resolve another customers issue while looking at 2 scenery_packs at once. I meant disable the GCTS mesh. Is that what you have tried?
  11. Your scenery_packs was layered wrong blocking some of the Canaries from being displayed. I have rearranged the Orbx addons to where they should be layered and moved some of your 3rd party airports above Global Airports otherwise they will be overwritten by the default airports. If you still have an issue with Tenerife, I suggest you try disabling the LSZH mesh that also comes with the LSZH addon. Do you use an organiser tool? If so it will change the layering of True Earth addons when you disable and then enable those addons. Your TE Canaries was not where Orbx central would have initially installed the files according to your submitted sceneruy_packs.ini scenery_packs.ini
  12. I attach 2 pics of what I see at the parking gates of LSZH Your scenery_packs looks OK Regarding comparisons with Navigraph I cannot help you as I don't use it, however your question regarding that aspect would be better asked at the Aerosoft forum as Aearosoft are responsible for all support with their addons. Aerosoft are using Orbx Direct as a retail outlet under the Partnership programme but remain responsible for Support requests. To check your addon you could try this addon isolation test to see if you are getting any duplications or interference with LSZH Rename your Custom Scenery folder to Custom Scenery.bak Make a new Custom Scenery folder Drag and drop or make shortcuts for the LSZH folders into the new Custom Scenery folder along with Global Airports Run XP11 at LSZH and see if there is any difference. This test will show if there is anything wrong with the addon as it will be isolated from all other addons.
  13. Drop this into the Earth nav data folder replacing the existing one. See if this does anything apt.dat
  14. If I understand you correctly then Orbx Central is not TEGB Central so TEGB Central is compatible with Mac. I am assuming you installed the Mac copy of Orbx Central as you have successfully installed TE SoCal. Clear Temp folder using Orbx Central/settings/downloader Run Verify Files for TEGB Reboot then try this: Rename Custom Scenery folder to Custom Scenery.bak Make new Custom Scenery folder Drag and drop TEGB Central files into the new Custom Scenery folder plus Global Airports. Nothing else. Start XP11 and exit. Open scenery_packs and make sure it is layered like this: SCENERY_PACK Custom Scenery/Global Airports/ SCENERY_PACK Custom Scenery/Orbx_A_GB_Central_TrueEarth_Custom/ SCENERY_PACK Custom Scenery/Orbx_B_GB_Central_TrueEarth_Overlay/ SCENERY_PACK Custom Scenery/Orbx_C_GB_Central_TrueEarth_Orthos/ If possible disable plugins. Load a flight in TEGB Central and only use the default Cessna 172 for a test flight. Report back
  15. I cannot think of anything to offer you as further advice that would not involve an upgrade of at east a part of your PC. Do you use any other plugins other than 3jfps? AI Traffic programme?
  16. Please attach your scenery_packs.ini so i can check it. You also need to ensure you have Runways follow terrain ticked in your XP11 settings Also please confirm you have OrbxLibsXP installed https://orbxdirect.com/product/orbxlibs-xp11?sqid=a0d5c372daebdc258c716bdee44750e7-1
  17. I am reluctant to comment other than X-Organiser is/was not necessarily compatible with True Earth addons as it will place them incorrectly when disabled and then reenabled by that tool. The Dev of X-Organiser had a chat a few months ago with our True Earth Dev and I was led to believe that a newer version of the tool was released which dealt with the issues. You may want to contact the X-Organiser Dev and/or check that you have the latest version. I cannot confirm however that the newer version has rectified the issue as I do not use it.
  18. I have revised your scenery_packs for you. You had too many incorrect layering placements that would be affecting or masking TEGB addons, like SFD Global, X-Europe and GB Lights (TEGB has lights) scenery_packs.ini
  19. Hi Juergen No that is not the Orbx EGHI addon that is showing. Can you confirm that you also have OrbxLibsXP installed? https://orbxdirect.com/product/orbxlibs-xp11?sqid=a0d5c372daebdc258c716bdee44750e7-1 Please attach your scenery_packs.ini for me to look at. (not a pic of the .ini but a text copy) @Nick Cooper please move this to the Support section as it is not a product bug
  20. Thanks for the feedback. To try and get the conversion to work we need to try the following: 1.Use Orbx Central to uninstall TEGB Central 2.Reboot PC 3. Open Orbx Central/settings/downloader and scroll down to Conversions and click on the down arrow and choose Moderate a shown in the attached pic. 4. Reinstall TEGB Central If that fails then please attach your Orbx Central log file by using Orbx Central/settings/help ad use a text editor to attach a copy of your Orbx Central log file as shown in pic below. I may well need to pass this issue over to the Orbx Central Support team as it appears to be a probable installation issue
